Bibingka | Ben&Ben
Through harana, a long-standing Filipino custom, you can express your love to someone. But the other way to show someone you care about them, which Ben&Ben will introduce you to, is by giving them a bibingka!

The song embodies the true meaning of Christmas, which is to be a time of love, hope, and spending time with those you care about. Additionally, it adds the melancholy that is typically seen in Christmas music. Even if it is not the holiday season, you can still listen to this song.
